Jane Martin

City to Sea is a not-for-profit campaigning organisation on a mission to prevent plastic pollution at source. Our award-winning campaigns, like Refill and Plastic Free Periods, target the items most commonly found on our beaches and polluting our rivers, from food packaging to cotton buds.

As Head of Development, I am focused on driving growth in the circular economy to make refill and reuse accessible and affordable for all and help businesses to move from away from our wasteful approach to packaging. I head up City to Sea’s work in the public sector, generate funding and impact from grant making bodies and collaborative partnerships, and develop innovations like the Refill Return Cup and the Refill App. I am particularly interested in disrupting our retail paradigm to combat social injustice and the climate and biodiversity emergencies.

I have 20 years’ experience across multiple sectors including environmental, FMCG, retail, leisure and culture and I’ve just completed a masters in Strategy, Change and Leadership at University of Bristol.
